EFCC claims Dariye is wanted in London for money laundering

27 January 2016, 14:15

Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) said that former Governor of Plateau State, Joshua Dariye, was still wanted in the United Kingdom for alleged money laundering, Punch reports.

The former governor was slammed with 23-counts charge of money laundering and alleged diversion of about N1.126 billion Plateau state government’s ecological funds.

The commission said the former governor escaped to Nigeria after jumping bail that was granted him in London in 2004.

The EFCC’s first prosecution witness, Sunday Musa, who is also a detective with the anti-graft agency, said the London Investigating Police Officer, Peter Clark, visited Nigeria in the course of EFCC’s investigation into the case against Dariye.

Dariye’s trial began following a seven year break since the case was opened. A supreme court’s judgment in February 2015 dismissed the former governor’s appeal and ordered him to appear at his trial.
